Do I Qualify for SSA’s Compassionate Allowance Program?
The Social Security Administration started a program called the Compassionate Allowance Program in 2008. It was started because the process of getting approved for Social Security Disability can be a tedious one. It can take several months or years to get approved for Social Security Administration.
The Compassionate Allowance Program allows people who have severe illnesses and disabilities to get benefits. In 2008, there were 50 conditions that qualified for the Compassionate Allowance Program. There are now over 200 conditions that qualify for Compassionate Allowance Program. This includes terminal cancer, muscular dystrophy, severe heart problems and I-cell disease.
You will need to fill out an application in order to get approved. You will also need to have medical records to support your claim.
Benefits of the SSA Compassionate Allowance Program
While it can take years to get approved for disability; you can start getting benefits from the Compassionate Allowance Program within a few weeks. It is also relatively simple to fill out the application. As long as you fill out the application properly and have the documentation to support your claim, you will likely be approved for it.
Furthermore, you may be able to get retroactive payments. You may be able to get payments that cover the time between you first discovered that you had a disability and the time that you had to wait to get approved. This means that if your application was delayed, then you may be able to get additional payments.
